Put God First – Denzel Washington Motivational & Inspiring Commencement Speech


Number one Put God first Put God first in everything you do Everything that you think you see in me everything that I’ve accomplished everything that you think I have and I have a few things Everything that I have is by the grace of God Understand that it’s a gift 40 years ago March 27 1975 was 40 years ago Just this past March. I was flunking out of college I had a 1.7 grade point average. I hope none of you can relate I had 1.7. Grade point average. I was sitting in my mother’s beauty shop They still call it beauty shops now what they call it. Yeah, I’ll sit in the beauty parlor I was sitting in my mother’s beauty parlor and I’m looking in the mirror, and I see behind me this woman under the dryer And every time she looked up. Every time I looked up. She was looking at me Just looking at me in the eye I don’t know who she was and I said You know she said somebody give me a pen give me a pencil I have a prophecy March 27 1975 she said boy you are gonna travel the world And speak to millions of people Now mind you I flunked out of college I’m thinking about joining the army I didn’t know what I was gonna do. She’s telling me I’m gonna travel the world and Speak to millions of people Well, I have traveled the world And I have spoke to millions of people But that’s not the most important thing the success that I had the most important thing is that what she taught me And what she told me that day has stayed with me since I’ve been protected. I’ve been directed. I’ve been corrected I kept God in my life and has kept me humble I didn’t always stick with him, but he always stuck with me So stick with him in everything you do if you think you want to do what you think I’ve done, then do what I’ve done and stick with God number two fail big That’s right fail big Today is the beginning of the rest of your life, and it can be be very frightening It’s a new world out there. It’s a mean world out there and You only live once So do what you feel passionate about take chances professionally Don’t be afraid to fail there’s an old IQ test was nine dots And you had to draw five lines with a pencil within these nine dots Without lifting the pencil the only way to do it was to go outside the box So don’t be afraid to go outside the box don’t be afraid to Think outside the box don’t be afraid to fail big to dream big but remember dreams without goals Are just dreams, and they ultimately fuel disappointment So have dreams But have goals life goals yearly goals Monthly goals daily goals. I try to give myself a goal every day Sometimes Just did not curse somebody out simple goals, but have goals and understand That to achieve these goals You must apply discipline and consistency In order to achieve your goals you must apply discipline, which you’ve already done and Consistency every day not just on Tuesday and miss a few days you have to work at it Every day you have to plan Every day you’ve heard the saying we don’t plan to fail we fail to plan hard work works Working really hard is what successful people do and in this Text tweet twerk world that you’ve grown up in Remember just because you’re doing a lot more Doesn’t mean you’re getting a lot more done Remember that just because you’re doing a lot more Doesn’t mean you’re getting a lot more Done don’t confuse Movement with progress My mother told me you can run in place all the time and never get anywhere So continue to strive, continue to have goals, continue to progress Number three you’ll never see a u-haul behind a hearse I’ll say it again You’ll never see a u-haul Behind a hearse. I don’t care how much money you make you can’t take it with you And it’s not how much you have It’s what you do With what you have we all have different talents some of you will be doctors some lawyers some Scientists some educators some nurses some teachers. Yeah, okay Some preachers The most selfish thing you can do in this world Is help someone else Why is it selfish because the gratification the goodness that comes to you the good feeling the good feeling that I get From helping others nothing’s better than that not jewelry not big house I have not the cars, but it’s the joy. That’s where the joy is in helping others. That’s where the success is Finally I pray that You put your slippers, way under the bed tonight So that when you wake up in the morning You have to get on your knees To reach them And While you’re down there Say, thank you for grace Thank you for mercy. Thank you for understanding Thank you for wisdom. Thank you for parents. Thank you for love. Thank you for kindness. Thank you for Humility thank you for peace. Thank you for Prosperity say. Thank you in advance for what’s already yours That’s how I live my life, that’s where I am one of the reasons why I am today Say, thank you in advance for what is already yours true desire in the heart for Anything good is God’s proof to you sent beforehand to indicate that it’s yours already I’ll say it again True desire in the heart that itch that you have Whatever it is you want to do that thing that you want to do to help others and to grow and to make money That desire that itch that’s God’s proof to you sent before hand already to indicate that it’s yours and anything you want good you can have So claim it Work hard to get it When you get it reach back pull someone else up each one teach one Don’t just aspire to make a living Aspire to make a difference

  3. I love the speech and are words I try to live by myself and know for a fact they work and are not just flowery rhetoric. I just found out why I've always thought he was so great at what he does like in the movie "The Book Of Eli" where he sacrifices his life to bring Gods word to a lost world. I thought it was so powerful and now I see he's a Christian so everything makes sense and and my respect goes even higher. May God bless him always.

  5. I can listen to this over and over again!!!
    My 6 year old son listened to this and said:โ€ mama thatโ€™s gonna make my day even betterโ€ โค๏ธ

  6. I have lived some time now and must say that I have found this….I have never seen or heard anyone say that they are sorry they have obeyed God. I have never seen or heard God be wrong! Gods' laws are perfect and sweeter than the honeycomb. We may not understand them or even agree with them, but if we simply follow and obey them…we will benefit greatly!

  8. I wanna share something with everyone reading this now. Putting GOD first in my LIFE has brought me this far. I lost my whole family, my wife two daughters and son. In the morning I pray during the day I pray and at night I pray. I was in hell but GOD had a bigger purpose for my life. PUT GOD FIRST, GOD BLESS YOU ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ

  10. Iโ€™m still trying to find my calling right now. God has always stuck with me even when I didnโ€™t stick with him. I keep making mistakes and hope that he wonโ€™t give up on me cause it hurts to feel like your letting down someone who has done nothing but love you unconditionally ๐Ÿ˜ข

    I subscribed because you gave subtitles to too many distint languages… I knew only Tamil, Telugu and English alone

  14. "PUT GOD FIRST IN EVERYTHING YOU DO!" & "SAY THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR WHAT IS ALREADY YOURS!" CLAIM IT!! Love his motivational and inspiring commencement speech !!! All of it!!

  15. I've tried to help others, many hate you and then expect only more and more, as they have failed to help themselves, even with tremendous support, It is wrong to be an enabler and allow others sin to pull you down! Beautiful music, and motivational ideals for the Lord, but be sure it is what he wishes you to do, or you will move further away from the Lord then rather in obedience, which is always counter productive, in heaven as well as on earth. That, is the Truth, and not just feel good words about yourself.

  16. You are all Holy and whole by Christ!, not one over another, unless you live and believe less than what the GOOD GOOD FATHER All around and in Heaven has paid for! I hope the whole church can actually go up to the court room of God and his throne room now before death to be a entry for "Christ made a way now", and we are seated in heavenly places, so stop staring at one another on a stage and go to his stage, a Heavenly Kingdom God made stage not man made, for things come from heaven to earth, and Christ tore the veil to enter in before , his presence by the Blood and righteousness of Christ (Yahushua) in you! So church are you going to believe yet, or do you need help call upon the Father to remove the unbelief! Enjoy his love and ecstasy of satisfaction in HIM, let him tell you and show you his love, because Christ is the "doorway"!, to what? To heaven! Thats what, and its not impossible! Why? All because Christ showed us and is still showing us today this second forever to look to the heaven and his kingdom and seek HIS kingdom first and HIS righteousness first, and as it is in Heaven may it be on Earth now, and always its that order, and how do we know what to bring to earth? Well Christ is the door so enter in Church to your inheritance, death is not the ticket, in Christ you are a new creation completely whole, you have been put to death already you cant die again, its Christ who lives in you! God has called you to be the bridegroom! To be the virgins you kept their lamps full of oil to burn bright for him now and forever because we are eternal! Have you herd him call you beloved, its the greatest love that he actually loves you that much you can hear him

    We have not lost any creativity with the Spirit of God living in us, he is always creating in us, lets visit his Spirit of WISDOM! Knowledge! Might! Understanding! Fear of the Lord! Council! and the Spirit of God! Principles of the Bible will never replace true relationship with the Father in Spirit out of Body and in his Truth! Hell is not a question or option when you walk with the Father daily!

  17. Such an inspiring word God bless you because I absolutely agree with you to Keep God first always in our lives what ever situation we may be
